Originally, Mortimer told officers that she tripped and fell.Days later, on New Year’s Eve, Fanjul called the police because of an “unwanted guest.” The cops arrived to find Mortimer locked in a bedroom at Fanjul’s home declaring she was fearful of him and wanted to prosecute her sometime lover.Numerous people interviewed for this story called the duo’s dating life “unhealthy.” But few knew just how unhealthy.Since December 2013, there has been one arrest, four police reports and a written warning from the Palm Beach Police Department — all of which document physical abuse and trespassing.
According to a source, Fanjul has been studying for his insurance license exam for the last three years.
Sources say the ordeal has been a living hell for Mortimer, who continued to let Fanjul back into her life, hoping he would change and fearful of the havoc his family might wreak should she go public with claims of abuse.
According to one police report, Mortimer was hospitalized “due to a possible battery” on Christmas Day 2013. The left side of her face next to her eye was very swollen with yellow-and-green bruising.
He and Mortimer started seeing each other in December 2012.
But Fanjul kept the relationship clandestine and mainly confined to after-hours hookups.
